IDY28000 Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology Bureau National Operations Centre Satellite Notes for 0000UTC Chart on 27 April 2017 Issued at 11:23 am EST Thursday on 27 April 2017 A broad trough extends along coastal Queensland to a low over the Tasman Sea, producing some patchy low level cloud near the QLD coast. A cold front is moving north along the northeastern New South Wales coast, with only patchy low cloud now associated with this feature over land. The cold front stretches to a broad low pressure centre over the Tasman Sea, with isolated thunderstorms embedded within middle level cloud observed. Low level cloud behind the cold front in a cold airmass can also be seen along the coast of South Australia, Victoria and Tasmania. A tropical low to the north of the Northern Territory is producing widespread thunderstorms, with some high cloud from these storms streaming down over northern Australia. Isolated thunderstorms and areas of middle level cloud over the Gascoyne and Pilbara districts of Western Australia are due to a surface trough. An upper level jetstream is acting to pull some high level cloud over the remaining southern and interior parts of WA.
